Sea Shell Craft Party!

Craft fun …Here is a little ring shell holder…I hot glued two shells together to look like an open clam shell and decorated it with stickles, beads , buttons and ribbon etc…This was the finished sample to give the girls an idea for their own.  I hot glued several so they just needed to decorate…

And here are my young artists taking my idea and running with it.  They really enjoyed this little project!

They really got into it!  Our beautiful friend Tamara  joined us and the girls were in creative bliss!  Hot glue, beads, vintage ribbon and creative ideas danced around the room…along with pink lemonade and chocolate of course.  A  girl just can’t be creative without chocolate!

Oh and some kitty love gladly given by Welby  he loves the girls…and as you can see the feeling looks mutual!

I really couldn’t believe how the girls went all out on this little project these look like something you would buy in a gift store!  We glued vintage bottle caps on the bottoms of the shells  so they would sit perfectly on any little girls dresser or shelf…

aren’t these beautiful?

Tamara wrote all the girls names on a card in calligraphy.  They were all little pieces of art.  We all watched intently as that pen just flowed out the beautiful script with each name finished with her artistic touch!

We also made stretchie bracelets.  I had put out all shapes sizes and colors of beads. Gave each young lady a beading needle with some stretch floss and imagination took to flight!  Some of the girls made rings too.

I have been watching my friends girls grow up so fast.. It seems like just a few years ago they were babies and little girls now they are teens and pre teens unbelievable!  We ended with a very special song played on the cello and some great back up vocals…

and here we are at the end of our fun filled afternoon.
